it took a while for us to get this right and hence, we are featuring this handset a few days late. we referring to the ZTE Grand Memo Android Phone and its intentional or not blooper of what’s actually goes under the hood. now that there is a confirmation from several sources, including those from the horses mouth and the chip provider, it is safe say that the Grand Memo, the Chinese maker’s flagship phone, is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (we reiterate: not 800) and with that, we don’t even want to question its clock speed. the product video says 1.7GHz, but now that confusion caused by the chip used, we are talking the 1.7 figure with huge pinch of salt. it’s going to be real saltish, but better than getting your hopes to high if you are eyeing at this supposed top-of-the-food chain handset. nevertheless, it is still a pretty phone with an impressive 8.5mm thickness.
undaunted? then here’s a short brief on the specs to be expected: a 5.7″ HD IPS display, 1GB of RAM (apparently, it is not 2GB as stated in the PR text), a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080 videoing capability, a 1MP front-facing camera, 1080p video playback, 16GB onboard storage, LTE-capable (Cat 3), a unusually large (but, nevertheless welcomed) 3,200 mAh battery, plus the usual suspects including WiFi, Bluetooth, MHL and DLNA, accelerometer, gyroscope, and proximity and ambient light sensors. the ZTE Grand Memo Android Phone is expected to launch with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean sometime in second quarter this year “with specifications varying between countries and regions.” is that why the confusion? perhaps. so if you are just as confused as us, do hit on the sources/references below for more information, and feel the Grand Memo mystery unfolds first hand, or you could learn more, if any, from ZTE website HERE.
